Basic Electrical and DC Theory: 10 PDH

Preview Course: Basic Electrical and DC Theory
This course explores the fundamentals of AC circuits, and how, instead of working with pure resistances, the concept of impedance is introduced. AC circuit theory can cause engineers a lot of difficulty; however this course will attempt to make the concept easy to see and understand. Numerous pictures and graphs are used to show the basic fundamentals of how Alternating Current works. This course also details the general theory and equations for AC Circuit analysis, AC generators and AC Motors.

SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE OR SKILL OBTAINED

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

    • How is DC voltage produced and what does an electric circuit consist of
    • What is a rectifier and how half-wave bridge rectifiers differ from full-wave bridge rectifiers
    • What is the difference between a schematic diagram, one-line diagram, block diagram and wiring diagram
    • What is resistivity and how temperature affects the resistance of materials
    • What is the difference between open circuit, close circuit, and short circuit
    • What primary characteristics identify a series, parallel or a combination circuit
    • How to calculate the current and voltage drop in series, parallel or combination circuits
    • How to calculate the equivalent resistance for a series, parallel or combination circuit
    • What is meant by the terms voltage divider and current division
    • How is electron flow theory different from conventional current theory

CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a 30 question multiple-choice quiz. The quiz can be retaken unlimited times until a passing grade of 70% or better is earned. This course satisfies 10 professional development hours (PDH) of continuing education.

AC Theory, Circuits, Generators & Motors: 6 PDH

Preview Course: AC Theory, Circuits, Generators & Motors
This course also introduces the basic electricity and electrical circuit concepts associated with direct current. Topics include calculation of current, voltage, resistance and power in series, parallel and combination circuits with direct current (DC) power sources.

SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE OR SKILL OBTAINED

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

    • AC motor theory
    • AC motor construction and operation
    • AC motor applications and usage
    • Transformer theory and design
    • Electronic Measuring devices
    • Instrument construction
    • Distribution systems

CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a 20 question multiple-choice quiz. The quiz can be retaken unlimited times until a passing grade of 70% or better is earned. This course satisfies 6 professional development hours (PDH) of continuing education.

SubjectRequirement
Hours Required15 hours annually
Renewal DatesDecember 31 every year
Course ApprovalThe Board requires pre-approval for providers/sponsors EZpdh is a North Carolina Approved Sponsor (Number:S-0650) (Note: The board does not approve courses, only approves sponsors)
Course ContentWhile the Board does not have specific acceptance rules, its website states that one or more of the following criteria should be used to make the determination of acceptable material:
■The course or activity is taken through an “Approved Sponsor.” EZpdh is a North Carolina Board “Approved Sponsor.”
■The licensee can substantiate that the course or activity has maintained, improved, or expanded the skills and knowledge relevant to his/her field of practice
■The activity will enhance the licensee’s ability to provide engineering/surveying services in a professional and competent manner and better protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public
■The subject matter of the course or activity is related to the licensee’s professional practice
■The course or activity is aimed at engineers/surveyors and is of a technical nature
■Advanced computer courses to be used in professional practice
Online CoursesAccepted. For Professional Engineers, there is no limit on the number of PDHs that can be earned through online continuing education
PDH CarryoverA maximum of 15 PDH may be carried forward into the next renewal period
Additional
  1. For dual licensees, the number of PDH remains 15 annually; however, a minimum of one-third of the required credits must pertain to each profession
  2. PDH completion records must be maintained for a minimum of 3 years. EZpdh.com helps you meet this requirement by providing you with the ability to instantly access and print a certificate upon successful completion of a course. Additionally, your certificates of completion are securely maintained by EZpdh.com for a minimum of seven years and can be accessed online through your login account
